Summer is right around the corner! Schools are letting out, family trips are being planned, the splash pad is open and the farmers market has all of the wonderful home grown veggies ready for you to pick up. Here at the Chamber, we have been working on something to make your summer even more exciting. Starting on May 31st at 6:00 PM we will be hosting our first ever Music Under the Stars event, a summer concert series presented by Debbie Bryant “nashvillesHOMEgirl.com.”
Not only will the night be filled with live music from local artists, but there will also be food trucks such as Delaney’s Street Eats and Sam T. Spoonlickers that serves edible craft cookie dough that’s safe and fun to eat! Also, there will be free inflatables provided by North Nash Event Rentals for kids to enjoy. All the events will take place in the field beside the splash pad. Chamber President and CEO, Mandy Christenson said, “As the Chamber, we truly believe that community involvement is what makes our town so special. By creating the Music and Movies Under the Stars event, this gives our community the chance to stay local and continue to build relationships with one another.”
On May 31st you will hear to two wonderful White House residents perform, Nathan Woodard and Ava Hurst. The opening act is White House Middle Schooler Ava Hurst. Hurst began singing and performing the day she was able to talk and walk. At eight years old she began vocal training and performing in Lubbock, Texas. “Within the past few years Ava has shared her gift with many audiences from recitals, commercial voice overs to private and public events.” She and her family relocated to White House in June of 2017 where she has performed the National Anthem at Vanderbilt and Lipscomb sporting events. “Ava is beginning to network in the Nashville area and is looking forward to sharing her love for music and touching others through her vocal gift from God!”
Following Hurst, singer/songwriter Nathan Woodard will entertain the crowd with originals and covers. Woodard began signing at the age of five in his family’s church and by eight, he was playing the guitar. Woodard is now a songwriter for Lifeway Songs and has released several albums with his newest one being “Up There.” His song “Up There” is on the Country Christian Top Charts where it has been for several weeks. He serves as the worship leader at White House First Baptist Church.
